The "Draw Trash Mutant" Initiative is here!
- by Trash Mutant Staff, 14 June 2012
Face front, True Believers! The Trash Mutant speaks! We're issuing a call to all the artists out there! Do you fit the description? Well then read all about the "Draw Trash Mutant" initiative right below!
UPDATE (June 5th 2013):
The first edition of DRAW TRASH MUTANT has ended on May 31st.
You can check the submissions and the winner right here.
You can also read the interview with the 1st edition's winner, Angy W.
WE ARE CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING ENTRIES.
All updates about new editions of the DRAW TRASH MUTANT contest will be posted on our home page, as well as our Facebook page and our Twitter, so stay tuned!
WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?
Well, the name of the whole thing probably already gave you a clue, but let's talk all the details!
It's a competition sort of thing. We're looking for visual artists that will create and submit their rendering of Ol' Trashy (that's him in our site's header and it's him right above in the initiative banner!). He can look like our version (red eyes, bad teeth, the whole deal) or he can be completely reimagined by you. As long as he's definitely a Trash Mutant, he qualifies! It doesn't even necessarily have to be a "he", it can be a "she" or an "it". We leave that up to you! The more diverse and creative the submissions, the better! Whatever technique of drawing/painting/whatever you like the most is fine, just as long as what you send us is an image and fits the "trash mutant" description (however, if it also fits the site's look than that will probably get some additional points... more on that below).
WHAT HAPPENS WITH THE SUBMISSIONS?
All the best submissions will be published in an article (if there's many of them then it might be a two-parter) here on Trash Mutant. From those, we will choose the few we really, really love the most and decide on a winner. The winning submission will be announced in an article of its own. Some of the works we like the most may also be immortalized on some pages here on Trash Mutant. Of course all the art that we will publish here will be credited to you and we'll provide a link to your website/portfolio or some other plug like that. Winning submission and it's author will also get a little extra exposure and shine here!
HOW TO PARTICIPATE?
WHAT'S THE DEADLINE?
The deadline for the first edition of "Draw Trash Mutant" is May 26th 2013 (that's a Sunday, and you can send your submissions until midnight!). Follow us on Twitter (@TrashMutant) or "like" us on Facebook where we will post all the updates on "Draw Trash Mutant".
Most of all, we hope you guys will have some fun with this! Because drawing is fun, drawing Trash Mutants is even funner and competitions are the funnerest! So get to work, artists! Go crazy and we hope we'll hear from you soon! If you have any questions, post them in the comments section below and we will address them!
